Features and Benefits
  • Permanent and Indelible Cassette Printing Using Laser Technology

    The CL-04 Laser Cassette Printer uses a focused low-power C02 laser that ablates a special polymer coating on the face of the tissue cassette. The printed text and barcodes are extremely durable and able to withstand the harshest reagents and solvents without fading or other damage.
  • Print High-Resolution Text and Barcodes On Tissue Cassettes

    The precision laser used in the CL-04 cassette printer produces high-resolution, high-contrast alphanumeric text and two-dimensional barcodes that scan quickly and easily. These high-resolution barcodes and text remain sharp, legible and scannable throughout the entire life of the cassette. Printed cassettes can be scanned with a barcode scanner anywhere in the lab to quickly and correctly identify the block and any corresponding case information.
  • Integrated Cassette Organizer Holds Up To 100 Tissue Cassettes

    The built-in cassette organizer eliminates double handling of cassettes by organizing as they are printed. The cassette organizer holds up to 100 cassettes for easy delivery to grossing stations.
  • Use For Both Batch and On-Demand Cassette Printing

    The CL-04 Laser Cassette Printer can be used for batch as well as distributed (on-demand) cassette printing. For labs that utilize a batch cassette printing workflow, the CL-04 can print up to 12 cassettes per minute; the fastest batch printing in the industry.
  • 4 Magazine Configuration With Quick and Easy Cassette Color Changeouts

    Four removable cassette magazines hold up to 70 cassettes each.. Magazines can be quickly and easily changed in a matter of seconds. The CL-04 cassette printer allows for an almost unlimited supply of cassette colors, especially when used with additional magazine holders.
  • ​Reliable Cassette Printing That Fits In Any Size Lab

    A small footprint allows the CL-04 Laser Cassette Printer to fit anywhere. The smooth, quiet operation makes it an asset to any lab operation. It is 99.9% reliable in feeding cassettes; resulting in no cassette jams, no work stoppage, and much less cassette waste.
